Roundtable Recap

Cross-sector partnerships can help the public sector unlock access to private sector innova-tion and funding. A collaborative approach between the public and private sectors means that contracting arrangements may be less constrained by pre-existing public sector knowledge and practice, and more open to facilitating novel and cost-effective approaches to public service delivery or facility management.

This resource was created in partnership with Fels Institute of Government, University of Pennsylvania to recap the key points from the NASCA Facilites Management Roundtable.
